What Sets It Apart
Bridgestone has six available tire brands, each one designed to fulfill a driver’s specific needs. The design of the Turanza line offers the most comfortability. It is a tire for smooth rides, but also to use in all types of conditions. It has outstanding noise reduction, improved tread wear, exceptional handling, and reliable performance.
The tires incorporate some of the Japanese giant’s characteristic technologies. It makes use of Resonance Noise Attenuated (RENOA) silencer grooves, which trap sounds produced at high speeds in the tire tread. This product also has a continuous center rib, a line that runs across the tire tread and further reduces sound.
The process is also more sustainable and utilizes 100% plant-derived materials. Tire production is normally a considerably polluting ordeal, so this is a step in the right direction.
Comfort and Performance
Comfort is the name of the game with these tires. They’re silent but reliable. Not only do they perform quietly at higher speeds, they also provide excellent protection against wear and tear, so you can enjoy them for longer. They use a lower rolling resistance, which improves fuel consumption efficiency.
When it comes to the materials, Bridgestone employs its signature NanoPro-Tech technology. This process changes the molecular structure of the tire compound so that different materials integrate better. In this case, it allows the tires to use silica with other types of rubber, which boosts grip performance and improves fuel efficiency.
Because of their design, all-season tires perform well in most conditions. Unfortunately, with these tires, that doesn’t hold true with large amounts of snow and ice, as they tend to struggle with unreliable handling. It becomes an even bigger problem with significant tire wear.
Safety and Durability
For Bridgestone, durability is an essential part of a comfortable ride, and these tires excel at both. However, as stated before, their performance considerably decreases in snow- and ice-covered roads. You should not rely on them in extreme situations because it could be dangerous.
The warranty depends on which type of tire you pick. Bridgestone offers 80,000 miles or a five-year warranty on their H models, 75,000 for V-rated, and 50,000 on W-rated. 80,000 miles is a tall order, as most tire models across the market tend to show considerable tire wear around 65,000 miles. If you spot significant tire wear, consider replacing your tires as this can lead to dangerous situations.
Who It’s For
If you’re the owner of a luxury or sport sedan on the lookout for all-season tires that excel at noise reduction, then this is for you. And their benefits are not limited to sound management because they also have excellent tire wear and fuel economy. They’re a good choice, as long as you don’t live in an area prone to deep snow and ice where they might struggle.
